State lawmakers are considering a budget proposal that could effectively end Missouri’s family planning program, leaving thousands of low-income patients seeking birth control and sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment with nowhere to go. Speak out and urge your senator to stand up for Missourians’ access to care. Vocal opposition worked with Congress, now your Missouri senator needs to hear from you!

Here's what HB 11 does:

  • Rejects millions of federal funds 
  • Cuts funding for the Women’s Health Services Program 
  • Recklessly and unnecessarily spends scarce state dollars all just to block Medicaid patients from choosing the best health care provider for annual exams, birth control, cancer screenings, and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment. 
What to say (Call Script)

Hi, my name is ____________ and I live in _____________.

I'm calling to ask my senator to restore the Women's Health Services Program in House Bill 11.

A House amendment to HB 11 may disqualify nearly all providers in the Women's Health Services Program, leaving low-income Missourians who need sexually transmitted disease tests and treatment, contraceptive counseling, and birth control with nowhere to go for preventive care.

I stand with these Missourians because [insert your own story, if you like].

Please remove this measure and vote against any other attacks on health care for the people of our state.

Thank you for your time.
